The AAMDC would like to remind our members of our current request for data regarding the Well Drilling Equipment Tax (WDET).  In an effort to better understand the financial impact of the WDET, the AAMDC has asked our members to provide a seven year history (2005-2011) of annual revenues collected through the WDET.

The current WDET regulation is set to expire on December 31, 2012 and the AAMDC has been working to understand the concerns and opportunities for improvement within the regulation.  With an understanding of the actual revenue levels sourced by municipalities, the AAMDC is better positioned to advocate on behalf of municipal interests.

If your municipality collects revenue through the WDET, we ask that you email a summary of your annual revenues (2005-2011) to darren.reedy@aamdc.com.  Thank you to all municipalities that have already submitted your revenue data.

Enquiries may be directed to:
